Just got my first one in the mail today. A slate blue garza grossa grenadine. Absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier. Definitely won't be my last Hober. Thanks David for a great tie and fantastic service!
Your tie is on its way and here are some photos of the construction process:
Here your Dark Chocolate Grenadine Garza Fina Tie has been folded, pinned and partially sewn:
A better photo of the area where tipping usually is; note what I was trying to explain earlier - the wool interlining is perfectly fitted. Normally the interlining simply has a flat finish above the tipping area.
The wool is naturally a lighter color so we have hand dyed the wool at our workshop, actually outside in the garden.
Here you can see the rolled edges and finished tie:

I received 3 more ties from David today. A navy grenadine fina silk, a greenish gold grenadine fina silk, and an Atkinson striped poplin #46. I received 5 from him last week. Beautiful ties all of them. I have nine more that are in various stages of production/shipping, bringing my Hober total to 61, and three more in the cart trying to decide to pull the trigger on them.
I have a bad addiction and must stop. Does anyone know where I can go for tie rehab?
No idea where you can go for rehab, but feel free to ship me your ties for safe keeping while you're there
